172 – 6th graders celebrated graduation together at Hermantown High School on Friday, after completing ten separate classes within the D.A.R.E. program.

Officer Tim Battaglia says, “You know, yeah they learn a lot of things, they learn facts and health effects on drugs and alcohol, but the D.A.R.E. program is so much more than that. They learn how to make safe and responsible decisions moving forward and hopefully stuff they can take with them when they start getting into the highschool freshman, sophomore, junior and senior years where they’re probably going to encounter more pressure to try drugs and alcohol.”

While the D.A.R.E. program has become less used in other areas, Hermantown has remained committed to keeping the program going for their students.
